An Iconic Brand

For more than 2 decades the World Islamic Banking Conference (WIBC) has been at the forefront of the global Islamic finance industry, establishing its reputation as the world’s largest and most influential annual gathering of international Islamic finance industry leaders. From a mere 120 pioneering delegates at its launch way back in 1994, the 21st Annual WIBC, to be held under the patronage of HRH Prince Khalifa Bin Salman Al Khalifa, The Prime Minister of the Kingdom of Bahrain, and with the official support of the Central Bank of Bahrain, is set to continue this tradition of supporting growth, excellence and innovation in the industry - and is poised to break new records in December 2014 for a special and unique event that will focus on further boosting the global expansion of Islamic finance and prepare the industry to forge ahead with more success in the year ahead.

Islamic Finance: Towards the New Paradigm Shift in Global Financial Markets

Much has been said about the phenomenal growth of the Islamic finance industry over the past decade – and the growth rates have been outstandingly impressive. Industry supporters have also lauded how successfully Islamic banking has largely weathered the global economic crisis that engulfed the conventional banking industry. However, notwithstanding these achievements, much still needs to be done if the industry is to move beyond its niche status, truly come of age and play its part on the world stage. The theme of the 21st Annual WIBC 2014 will focus on “Islamic Finance: Towards the New Paradigm Shift in Global Financial Markets” and will tackle key areas of the Islamic finance sector, including regulatory, strategic, Shari’ah, operational and risk transformation to ensure that the industry is able to build critical mass, expand its geographic reach & depth, and participate in large-scale deals seamlessly across jurisdictions – and, ultimately and most importantly, to successfully meet the needs of an ever-growing base of investors, customers and end-users.

The World Islamic Banking Conference, in its 21st Annual Edition, will set the stage for pioneers, industry titans and global leaders who have trail-blazed the development of Islamic finance to gather in the Kingdom of Bahrain not only to celebrate the tremendous growth that the international Islamic finance industry has achieved over 2 decades but also to revisit and re-mould the critical success factors that will enable the industry to achieve the next set of milestones.

The global market leaders will gather in full force, with more than 1,300 attendees representing over 50 countries, at the 21st Annual WIBC to shape the future of the Islamic finance industry.

The 21st Annual edition of the World Islamic Banking Conference is set to be the most important gathering ever in its 2 decades of history. WIBC 2014 will feature a number of new features and innovative sessions that would not only examine the significant achievements of the industry over the past more than 2 decades but will also provide major discussions on transforming the industry to achieve further success and growth. Some of the innovative special features and new additions to the World Islamic Banking Conference this year include:
